Located in the ITC at 1710 E. Sorority Row.  3D-Printing is available to UW students, faculty , and staff on a first-come, first-served basis.

Steps to Use the 3D Printer

  • Save 3D file(s) as a ".obj", or ".stl" format.
  • Choose desired finished size (in inches), and filament color (colors vary by material).
  • Go to the Online 3D Printing Request form Opens in new window ,
  • Files sizes are limited to 50mb or smaller as attachments in the online 3D Request form.
  • Larger files need to be delivered to the ITC front desk, M-F, 8am-5pm.
  • Printing Charges are for material: $.40 per gram, rounded to the nearest $0.25.
  • After files are received, printing cost estimates will be provided based on desired finished object size and resolution.

Additional Notes

  • Printers use ".stl", and ".obj" files.
  • When creating projects, please consider that some assembly/cleanup will always be required. Additionally using PVA (water-soluble material) will take at least an extra day to dissolve the supports. Using PVA also limits a print to a single color.
  • Use a 3-D CAD model from SolidWorks, Google SketchUp, or similar program, to create the ".stl" file required,
  • Maximum build volume 8.7 x 8.7 x 11.5 inches for single color prints, and 7.8 x 7.8 x 11.5 inches for dual color
  • Current materials are PLA.
  • Print media colors may include: black, white, clear, gray, orange, green, yellow, blue, purple and brown.
